Latin for "Behold the Man", the term often appears in Renaissance Art in crucifixion scenes when Jesus Christ, wearing tattered robes, is presented to the Jews by Pontius Pilate before Jesus is crucified. Pontius Pilate replies: "Ecce Home". Source: Kimberley Reynolds and Richard Seddon, "Illustrated Dictionary of Art Terms"; Julia M Ehresmann, "The Pocket Dictionary of Art Terms"
